At USF, we make the transfer credit evaluation process clear so that you can be on your way to changing the world from here.
Any university level (for example, UC transferable) course from a regionally accredited college or university earned with a C- or higher will transfer to USF. Remedial or vocational courses are not transferable. In addition, graduate coursework or non-university-level courses will not transfer to USF. There is no limit to the total number of credits that can be transferred in; however, all students must complete the minimum residency requirement that 44 semester units be taken at USF.
Once you are admitted to USF, you will receive access to an online degree evaluation on the myUSF portal detailing how your previous coursework has transferred and if it meets USF core curriculum requirements. The time needed to complete your degree will depend on your total number of credits and their distribution toward USF graduation requirements.
Specific coursework is not required to transfer to the University of San Francisco for non-nursing majors. However, if you are planning on transferring to USF in the future, we recommend that you take classes that will meet our core curriculum requirements. In addition, we’ve also put together recommended coursework based on your choice of major.
